Cell phones to blame for growth of 'horns' on young people, says new research


In what some may see as an eery omen of the times, a devilish new feature is being found on the skulls of the American youth, and technology could be to blame.

It sounds, on its face, like something out of the World Weekly News - a tabloid famous for their insinuations that famous politicians may have been coital with monsters such as Bigfoot, and that a creature named Bat Boy exists.

But no, this is all too real:  Young people are growing horns, and cell phones may be to blame.

New research in biomechanics suggests that young people are developing hornlike spikes at the back of their skulls - bone spurs caused by the forward tilt of the head, which shifts weight from the spine to the muscles at ligaments. The weight transfer that causes the buildup can be compared to the way the skin thickens into a callus as a response to pressure or abrasion.

The result is a hook or hornlike feature jutting out from the skull, just above the neck.

And here's the kicker:

In academic papers, a pair of researchers at the University of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia, argues that the prevalence of the bone growth in younger adults points to shifting body posture brought about by the use of modern technology. They say smartphones and other handheld devices are contorting the human form, requiring users to bend their heads forward to make sense of what's happening on the miniature screens.

There are already plenty of reasons to be concerned about the rapid advances in technology that we brazenly forge, without afterthought, including the advent of Deepfake videos.

Being fooled by footage on the internet is one thing, but inadvertently adjusting the very bodies in which we live is yet another worrisome bit of our new digital world.
